Two teams who are very much in the Premier League title race go head-to-head this Sunday, when Southampton host Manchester City in the first of a Sky Sports Super Sunday double header.

As defending champions, Manchester City have made a stuttering start to their defence this campaign and seen Chelsea race to the top of the table, but an impressive comeback victory against German giants Bayern Munich on Tuesday night may be the catalyst the Citizens need to reignite their tilt for the championship.

In their way both on Sunday and in the table are Southampton, however, who have amazed critics and neutrals alike with a barnstorming run to second place in the league, despite many predicting they would be relegation candidates in 2014-15 after selling many of their most high-profile stars over the summer.

The game at St Mary's is therefore evenly matched, with the 1:30pm kick-off helping to get another day of high quality football underway on Sky Sports 1.

The Sky Sports cameras will then make the journey north to White Hart Lane at 4pm, when Tottenham take on Everton in a game that has traditionally been one of the hardest-to-call fixtures in the calendar.

Spurs have flattered to deceive under Mauricio Pochettino, with a number of sparkling performances in Europe followed by flat outings in the league, and they will hope to avoid the same fate on Sunday after their Europa League exertions on Thursday night.

For Everton, it is a chance to solidify their position in the top half of the table in a campaign that has yet to see any team outside of the top three really stake their claim for a Champions League spot.

Fans of Scottish football also have a double bill in store this Sunday, with a brace of Scottish Cup fourth round ties featuring some footballing giants north of the border.

First up from 12:45 on Sky Sports 2, resurgent Rangers will face Kilmarnock in a tie that could go either way on paper, before Celtic take on Hearts on the same channel as the Hoops look to add yet another trophy to their bulging cabinet.

If all that is not enough, Sky Sports 5 has a triple header of European action lined up, with PSV vs Feyenoord from the Dutch Eredivisie kicking off at 3:45pm, before the attention moves to Spain as Cordoba and Villareal face off in La Liga at 6pm, and the weekend comes to a close with Valencia vs Barcelona at 8pm.
